Sweet Green Tea Soap

Sweet Green Tea Soap

Ingredients

  • 1 cup shea butter melt and pour soap (suspension formula)
  • 1 green tea sachet (about 1 tablespoon)
  • 1 tablespoon Dixie Crystals Turbinado
  • Soap molds (silicon molds release best)

Notes:

  1. To ensure that green tea and turbinado are evenly distributed through the bar of soap, be sure to choose as suspension soap base.  With a non-suspension base, ingredients will settle to the bottom of the soap.
  2. Shea butter soaps need to breathe, so leave unwrapped or wrap with breatheable paper. (They can also be stored in brown paper bags.) Prior to use, store in a cool, dry location away from heat and humidity.   

Directions

  1. Cut melt-and-pour soap into cubes and place in glass measuring cup.
  2. Place in microwave on high for 40 seconds. Stir and repeat for 10 second intervals until completely melted.
  3. Let cool slightly for about one minute.
  4. Stir in green tea until well-distributed.
  5. Stir in turbinado. (The larger sugar crystals will not dissolve.)
  6. Carefully pour soap mixture into molds, filling to top of mold.
  7. If bubbles appear on top of soap, gently spritz with alcohol to pop them.
  8. Let soap sit in a stable location for at least 4 hours. To extract soap from molds, gently push on the bottom of the mold until soap is released.
